The Data Fabric was unveiled in 2014 as a vision for managing data across hybrid cloud environments. Since that time, NetApp has released new products and solutions that have moved the Data Fabric from vision to reality. So, perhaps the best way to answer the question of "What can I do with a Data Fabric?" is to share the latest technology demonstrations from one of our leading experts: Joe CaraDonna, Senior Technical Director, Data Fabric Services.
